Problem is your /boot partition is too full. You can't really do much at this point other than carry on deleting old kernels to free up space. That is the minimally invasive fix.
ID-2: /boot size: 704.5 MiB used: 678.1 MiB (96.3%) fs: ext4
Ok, but problem is the old kernels won't delete.

Re: Linux Mint 19.3, Intel 3945ABG, no wifi connection

This worked for someone in an old thread, so see if it works for you:

Code: Select all

echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
sudo modprobe -rfv iwlwifi
sudo modprobe -v iwlwifi

Re: error after boot

That's a lot of space, so not sure why it says no space left. :? Maybe it's a partition issue, but that's over my head.

Re: error after boot

I find it troubling that the error is complaining that there is no space left on the drive. Worse, I'm not sure how to tell exactly how much space there is left on the drive. Contrast this with windblows, where I could simply bring up the properties for the drive and, well, you know... Anyway, how ...

Re: error after boot

Can you remove any other old kernel just to free up some space? Try just one at a time.

Re: After upgrade to Mint 20 - WiFi disappeared

Pierre,

Do you happen to know if Mint 20 can use the 4.15 kernel? I'm guessing no, but I'm not sure.

Re: After upgrade to Mint 20 - WiFi disappeared

Well, 19.3 is good until April 2023. Maybe by then any current bugs in Mint 20 will be gone.

Re: error after boot

You can remove old unneeded kernels in Update Manager, View, Linux kernels. You'll want to keep the current one & the previous one as a backup. Any others installed can be safely removed. You can also run this command to free up more space:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt autoremove

Re: Removing old kernels - how many to keep?

The only ones taking up space are the installed & active ones, no need to worry about the others. If you want to free up some more space, run;

Could my dad put the driver from his Linux machine on a flash drive for me to use? Would the same driver work, or would he have to hunt for the one for my machine? It might be possible to put the driver on a flash & install it that way, but I can't help with that. Only other thing I can suggest is ...
